Bahia la Tortuga Fishing Lodge had the pleasure of being fished by ESPN’s Jose Wejebe, host of The Spanish Fly. Jose caught 7 sailfish and was able to film some great underwater action.
“Recently I went on a exploratory adventure to a remote fishing lodge called Bahia la Tortuga located in the fishing village of Puerto Vicente, which is on the Pacific side of Mexico. John Lorenz and his lovely wife, Angie, were the best hosts anyone could have, serving some of the best Mexican dishes and really making us feel at home in their place.” Read The Full Review at SpanishFlyTV.com

Bahia La Tortuga Fishing Lodge was featured on ESPN2’s “Wanna Go Fishing?” :
“Being lucky enough to host Wanna Go Fishing? on ESPN 2 has allowed me to fish some of the hottest fishing locations in North and Central America, and without question, Bahia ” La Tortuga” fishing lodge is one place you shouldn’t pass up. If you want to have an outrageous inshore or offshore experience, and at the same time have a real authentic cultural Mexican experience, then this is the place to go.
“I can’t say enough about the food, service, lodge, short runs, and the giant marlin that inhabit this tremendous place.”
Host of Wanna Go Fishing?
Located 50 nautical miles south of Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo and 90 nautical miles north of Acapulco, the productive waters begin just 1 mile off the lodge, but are too far away for the large charter fleets in the neighboring cities to fish on a regular basis.
If you want to trade in the strip malls, chain restaurants and traffic of Mexico’s big hot spots for a quiet, charming fishing village, Puerto Vicente is the place to go. Read more about Bahia La Tortuga in Marlin Magazine

From Saltwater Sportsman Magazine, January 2006
“Puerto Vicente Guerrero, about an hour south of Zihuatanejo is the brightest new fishing destination in Mexico and Bahia La Tortuga Lodge in this small town gives you a real flavor of the town, its friendly people and the fishing. With sailfish only a few miles offshore, this is an easy place to fish, has great fishing and virtually nobody is going after these fish. This adobe lodge has everything you need including private bathrooms in your rooms and air conditioning. Meals are excellent and the picturesque beach only a couple hundred yards away makes this an idyllic setting …”
